Online Desk |  1 year ago | local

Government says it has purchased state-of-the-art machinery to provide reliable data for the country to up its weather surveillance and early response mechanisms in the event of disasters.

This was said by Environment, Climate, Tourism, and Hospitality Industry Minister Mangaliso Ndlovu in Harare on Thursday as the country marked World Meteorological Day.

The equipment comes at a time Zimbabwe is facing adverse weather patterns including droughts and floods, as a result of climate change, which has left weather experts calling for more investment in environmental surveillance equipment. 

The theme for the 2022 World Meteorological Day is, 'Early warning, Early action'.
